Confirming the pregnancy

How many times have you taken the home pregnancy test? Are you convinced yet? If you need more proof, check out these changes in your body:
  • You're feeling a bit green. That queasy feeling in the pit of your stomach that grows into a dry heave is a common indicator that you're on the mommy track.
  • Things smell different. Odors are stronger, more pungent.
  • You're spotting. Instead of the flow of menstrual blood you're used to with your period, you may see small spots of blood sometimes; usually it's brownish and has no clots or clumps in it. Spotting is rarely cause for alarm. It may happen on and off for several months. However, you should call your doctor if you are concerned.
  • You're tired. Exhausted is a better word for the way some women feel right from the start. If you're one of these women, it has probably taken you three days to get to this page of the book. It's just too tiring to stay at any task too long.
  • Some women experience dizziness and headaches right in the beginning. These symptoms are usually mild but persistent.
